MÁS is an Intermediate Spanish program built on the assumption that students learn best when they are fully engaged. Each component of the MÁS experience is designed to spark curiosity and inspire critical thinking, from its unique magazine format to its thought-provoking readings and stunning short film collection. In addition to providing intriguing and timely cultural content and a solid review of structures covered in the first year, MÁS places a strong emphasis on open-ended communication, ensuring that students benefit from a wealth of opportunities for communicative practice, both in class and online. Students who need additional practice with grammar and vocabulary to meet second-year expectations can strengthen their skills using LearnSmart, an adaptive learning tool that gives them the opportunity to focus their study time where they most need it. Through its diverse and lively view of the Spanish-speaking world, MÁS motivates a new generation of students to be inspired to communicate in Spanish.
This new, stronger edition of MÁS welcomes multiple new readings, more communicative activities, new visuals, an eBook, as well as multiple resources online through Connect Spanish that address a variety of learning styles and student behaviors. Each feature of MÁS has been carefully selected to introduce important elements of the Spanish-speaking world and encourage exploration of different mediums of authentic content to both inspire and intrigue students' language learning experience.
We are excited about the many new learning opportunities we have brought to this edition of MÁS, and we hope that it pushes our students to explore the Spanish-speaking world beyond the classroom, always seeking to learn and do more.
